After refusing to address the incident Sunday, the Patriots coach called the photographer at home to apologize.
“I do feel bad about that,” Belichick said on Boston radio station WEEI. “I really didn’t mean to hit him up high there. I was trying to just push him out of the way and get to Eric. It wasn’t … it certainly wasn’t called for, so I … I wish that hadn’t happened.”
Reports out of Foxboro indicate BB will use the infamous video as a training tool for his defensive linemen. An anonymous source broke down the swim move for PatriotsFanBlog.com, “Even in the spur of the moment, Bill shows an understanding for the basic fundamentals of the game. Notice he squares up his shoulders and shoves the cameraman away with ease. One thing players always have a hard time getting is the force doesn’t come from the arms, but rather from the legs. BB drives through with power from his legs, and that’s what made this swim move work so well.”
